A little history about the building (which is next to the Fabulous Fox):
- The BBBS is housed in the Woolworth Building, which, of course, the legendary drugstore was.
- The building which once sat before Woolworth was the old Beers Hotel, which was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.
- It was the site of several pickets and protests, mostly focused during the Civil Rights era in the 1960s. The lunch counter at the Woolworths store was segregated.
- Woolworths closed in 1993, and it sat vacant for many years
The cake sold for $511 on 1/1/2015.
